James N Frey Quotes

"Readers find most flashbacksintolerable. Yet a lot of neophyte writers flash back like mad.Why? No one but the Creator of the Universe knows for sure,but there is a likely answer: they find the conflicts in the "now"of the story produce anxiety in themselves."

Quotes About Waiting Lists

"For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesnt conspire against you, but it doesnt go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. "Someday" is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If its important to you and you want to do it "eventually," just do it and correct course along the way." - Author: Timothy Ferriss

Quotes About Bad Words Spoken

"Finally he spoke the three simple words that no amount of bad art or bad faith can every quite cheapen. She repeated them, with exactly the same slight emphasis on the second word, as though she were the one to say them first. He had no religious belief, but it was impossible not to think of an invisible presence or witness in the room, and that these words spoken aloud were like signatures on an unseen contract." - Author: Ian McEwan

Quotes About Shopping

"I think back to those days after the Bastille fell, the Mercure Nationale run from the back of the shop, that little Louise sticking her well-bred nose in the air and flouncing off to bawl out their printer—and you know, he was a good lad, François. Id say, ‘Go and do this, this, this, go and tie some bricks to your boots and jump in the Seine, and he‘d"— Danton touched an imaginary forelock—‘right away, Georges-Jacques, and do you need any shopping while Im out? Jesus, what a way to end up. When you see him, tell him Id be obliged if he forgets he knows me." - Author: Hilary Mantel

Quotes About Politics And Life

"the swarms of cringers, suckers, doughfaces, lice of politics, planners of sly involutions for their own preferment to city offices or state legislatures or the judiciary or congress or the presidency, obtain a response of love and natural deference from the people whether they get the offices or no . . . . when it is better to be a bound booby and rogue in office at a high salary than the poorest free mechanic or farmer with his hat unmoved from his head and firm eyes and a candid and generous heart . . . . and when servility by town or state or the federal government or any oppression on a large scale or small scale can be tried on without its own punishment following duly after in exact proportion against the smallest chance of escape . . . . or rather when all life and all the souls of men and women are discharged from any part of the earth—then only shall the instinct of liberty be discharged from that part of the earth." - Author: Walt Whitman

Quotes About Ariel Tempest

"Other than along certain emotional tangents there was little in the book that felt as if it had actually been lived. It was a fiction produced by someone who knew only fictions, The Tempest as written by isolate Miranda, raised on the romances in her fathers library." - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Handling The Truth

"Literature, like magic, has always been about the handling of secrets, about the pain, the destruction, and the marvelous liberation that can result when they are revealed. Telling the truth when the truth matters most is almost always a frightening prospect. If a writer doesnt give away secrets, his own or those of the people he loves; if she doesnt court disapproval, reproach, and general wrath, whether of friends, family, or party apparatchiks; if the writer submits his work to an internal censor long before anyone else can get their hands on it, the result is pallid, inanimate, a lump of earth." - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Logical Love

"A human being becomes human not through the casual convergence of certain biological conditions, but through an act of will and love on the part of other people. If this is not the case, then humanity becomes — as it is already to a large extent — no more than a rabbit-warren. But this is no longer a "free-range" warren but a "battery" one, in the conditions of artificiality in which it lives, with artificial light and chemical feed." - Author: Italo Calvino

Quotes About Guys That Are Not Worth It

"You know what punk is? a bunch of no-talent guys who really, really want to be in a band. Nobody reads music, nobody plays the mandolin, and youre too dumb to write songs about mythology or Middle-earth. So whats your style? Three chords, cranked out fast and loud and distorted because your instruments are crap and you cant play them worth a damn. And you scream your lungs out to cover up the fact that you cant sing. It should suck, but heres the thing - it doesnt. Rock and roll can be so full of itself, but not this. Its simple and angry and raw." - Author: Gordon Korman

Quotes About Losing A Pet

"Claims have been made that Ive been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers Ive never met, eating sprouted grains I cant pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 53" frame. Losing 14 pounds out of necessity in order to live a healthier life is a huge victory. Im a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, Id have to part with both arms. And a foot." - Author: Scarlett Johansson

Quotes About Cures

"...those impious epicures, libertines, atheists, hypocrites, infidels, worldly, secure, impenitent, unthankful, and carnal-minded men, that attribute all to natural causes, that will acknowledge no supreme power; that have cauterized consciences, or live in a reprobate sense; or such desperate persons as are too distrustful of his mercies." - Author: Robert Burton
